By BBN Staff: A Belize City man will spend two years in jail after he ripped a chain off the neck of a Magistrate.

Tyrel Robinson, 23, appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court unrepresented on Wednesday, facing charges of theft, attempted theft, common assault, and damage to property.

He was given two 18-month sentences, a six-month sentence, and a three-month sentence, but since some of the sentences will run concurrently, he will only spend a total of two years.

The incident occurred on November 23, 2019; when Robinson snatched a gold chain being worn at Magistrate Tanisha Smith. The chain, valued at $2000 burst and fell into Smith’s blouse, leaving Robinson with only the medal, valued at $600. Police say that the act of snatching the chain amounted to the assault, and the fact that the chain was damaged in the incident also amounted to damage to property.
